How to Connect a Wireless Xbox 360 Controller to a PC (Windows 8.1)

When Titanfall launched I had to get my hands on it. Unfortunately, I wasn’t interested in purchasing an Xbox One at the time. Luckily, my laptop can handle the game pretty well, so I dropped the cash and bought it for my PC. I’m generally a console gamer, so naturally I wanted to use a wireless Xbox 360 controller while plowing through some pilots with my Titan. To do so, I had to follow these specific steps. Keep in mind this is a tutorial for Window 8.1, but I imagine the setup process will be similar on Windows 7. (EA, Next-Gen, PC, Tech, TitanFall, Xbox 360)

Easy cowboy. They are talking about wireless 360. You don't need to get the fanboy comment going on this one. Just move along.

That is pretty much how I use my DS4 on the PS4 too, since it seems the battery is almost always dead. Long live hard wired controllers. :|

Wired controllers are better anyways. Wireless can be useful except for the fact you either go through a lot batteries, or need to have them plugged in at some point to charge and stuff.

Besides most wired controllers nowadays have like a 3 meter cord and stuff. So for the most part you should be able sit on your gaming chair or what have you and still be a descent length away from your tv/monitor and stuff.

I'd recommend the http://forums.pcsx2.net/Thr... in that case , just because so many games on PC internally support the xbox controller.

Uhm, this is not news. I've been using a wireless 360 controller for half a decade. It's simple:

Install driver, plug in receiver dongle (which has an insanely long cable for a wireless solution) and put batteries in the controller. Sync the two.

After that it's just plug and play.

(this works on Vista, 7 and 8. Probably XP too...)

If you don't have USB dongle and your x360 gone RROD, you can use RF Module.
